Building is a serious business. There are many important factors to take into consideration when building or buying a home. As a result, a variety of “Building Codes” and “Certifications” have been put in place to ensure the safety of a building and to ensure that the builder meets a certain quality standard for the unit you are purchasing.
As urban populations continue to grow and cities face increased housing demands, innovative solutions are crucial to accommodate the changing needs of residents. In Toronto, one such solution gaining traction is the construction of garden or laneway suites. These compact and sustainable housing units, built in under-utilized laneways or yards, offer an excellent opportunity to maximize urban space and address the city’s housing challenges.
